Kate Nash - Coming to a school near you?
Very interesting idea from Kate Nash, wishing her luck with it. Taken from The Guardian: http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2011/mar/20/kate-nash-girls-music-clubs-interview Kate Nash – tall, smiley, charismatic – talks in a rush when she’s excited. Her words tumble over themselves, in fits and starts; she throws her hands around. “OK, so this is it,” says Nash, whose debut...

VIA SPIN The Hold Steady may have sung the words “Me and my friends are like / The drums on ‘Lust for Life,’ ” but John Darnielle lives them. As he speaks in his living room in Durham, North Carolina, it’s easy to understand how he has ascended to cult-hero status as one of our greatest lyricists: He is as educated and evangelical about unexplored corners of...
